Our historic Seattle bicycle tours starts in the center of urban Seattle at our Seattle Cycling Tours office located at 714 Pike Street. From here we lead you through the streets of current day while reflecting on and revealing some of it's historic past, learn about it's architecture, it's pioneers, the famous and the forgotten. Each trip is designed to incorporate what's happening now, what came before, and what changes are in store. The historic Seattle tour is important for Seattle visitors, because in a few months, the Seattle Waterfront will begin to be transformed forever. In fact this tour may become history as well, because the waterfront will certainly become a mysterious web of turns and slowdowns due to the immensity of the construction that will take place over the next 7 years.
We start at Freeway Park, and head for Chinatown and Pioneer Square where the first pioneers set up a city. Here we circle around and learn what's beneath the cobblestone streets and what goes under them next. We then travel down the waterfront seeing public artworks in their outdoor museum, while viewing distant snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains towering over Puget Sound. From there we head to the Seattle Center, home of the 1962 World's Fair, and then traverse the streets of Seattle's newly renovated South Lake Union neighborhood, before we circle back to our starting point, --Just another urban bicycle ride gone good.
